Richard Peddy is married and a father of three. He has lived in Tucson for over 40 years, and is co-owner of a business that builds and services fountains and custom water features. His home is overrun with three dogs and six cats; all were thrust upon him by different circumstances, but he likes them all( to varying degrees ). Richard has always been a closet writer, but started this blog at his computer, where he can see better.

    yes… with a broad smile I worked my way through the writings… of course… a deep twinge of the heart here and there, especially on the son and daughter pieces. Thank you for wrapping words around the real life with humility and a sideways smirk. It would be an honor to pull some of these into the Devotional… truth is truth.

    “Richard has always been a closet writer, but started this blog at his computer, where he can see better.” Great line!

    • Yay! I thought so too; now I can leave it(thought about changing it). Visited your blog briefly; will send more time when things calm down. What kind of bucket list do you make when you’re(me, actually) broke?

    What a fabulous writing style you have! I absolutely love reading! The post about Tucson drivers is great – I went to UA and can relate. I don’t have to deal with drivers so much now anymore – we moved to Germany and my main mode of transportation is a bicycle. Keep up the good work, and I’ll keep reading!!!
